Personal Injury Lawyer Legal Services
With over 40,000 Americans dying in car crashes each year, it is no surprise that automobile accidents are a prolific source of personal injury cases. To be fair, there are many common causes of car accidents: rubbernecking, cell phone use, driver fatigue, distracting passengers, and changing the radio station all rate near the top. If you have been injured in an accident or injured someone else in a collision, you should realize the importance of proving fault in auto accidents. Choosing the right lawyer for your auto accident case can help tremendously, especially if “fault” in your situation is unclear or in debate.
Dangerous Property or Buildings
Dangerous property or buildings can be the cause of expensive lawsuits for the people who own them, and landlords may wish to speak with business code lawyers to ensure compliance with local laws. In the case of dilapidated or blighted property, owners can even be sued if the locality steps in to make needed repairs. Those who have been injured on unsafe or dangerous property can also sue for damages via personal injury lawyers.
Defective products are products that cause injury due to an error in labeling, a defect in design, or an issue with the manufacturing process. This legal label covers any number of product-related injuries, including injuries from kitchen appliances, misleading health claims on food labels, and car defect injury claims (as in the case of Firestone tires). Those injured by usage of a consumer product should file a defective product injury lawsuit with local personal injury lawyers or check to see if a defective products class action lawsuit is already in place.
Medical malpractice can be filed for a variety of reasons, from prescription errors to improper treatment. Medical malpractice claims can be filed against both individual practitioners and medical institutions, as in the case of hospital medical malpractice. Birth injury, in which the injured party is a newborn or unborn child, also warrants a medical malpractice suit and should be brought up with personal injury attorney.
The general category under which all personal injury cases fall.

THE IMPORTANCE OF CHOOSING AN EXPERIENCED PERSONAL INJURY ATTORNEY WITH A SUCCESSFUL TRACK RECORD
Throughout the years, our personal injury attorneys have successfully represented individuals and families in New York and New Jersey who suffered injury by the negligence or recklessness of others and we understand how devastating and overwhelming it can be to deal with mounting costs and suffering caused by serious personal injury. We retain the very best experts including accident reconstructionists, biomechanical engineers, medical doctors, forensic pathologists, economists and other experts from the various disciplines involved in the case because every personal injury case requires the plaintiff to prove both liability and damages.

Our trial lawyers will document and preserve any evidence necessary to prove your case and meticulously prepare your case for trial.
